Sailed to this island and stayed a couple of nights. Lots of fantastic beaches and snorkelling. Lighthouse is worth a visit and a golf cart tour around the area was fun!

Nothing like fantastic weather, wonderful people and the prettiest water you have ever seen! Make sure and hit Abaco Inn and have Daphne make you a great cocktail! And Tom Hazel is the best host in the Bahamas!

I enjoyed the whole history behind the light house. The view was great, the kids had fun climbing all the way to the top. Our captain was a native Bahamian and told us a lot of Bahamian history and story.

We anchored off the lighthouse and took the dinghy in for lunch and supplies. You can snorkel off the beach (other side of island than lighthouse) either by taking the dinghy all the way around or docking it and walking. The hike up the lighthouse is worth the effort. The views are wonderful.

A beautiful spot to hang your hat for a while. There are several great resorts to stay, marinas to dock your boat, restaurants with fabulous food and drink and beaches to rest. Notably the Harbour Lodge was a beautiful property as was the Hope Town Inn and Marina. Easily accessible to other islands by ferry service. I will definitely return!

This beautiful Cay has everything you're looking for in a Bahamian destination. The town is perfect for walking through, beautiful beaches, access to the Atlantic and friendly people. Wonderful place to spend a week-end or a month.

If you're looking for paradise - this is it! Having spent almost five months at the North End last year, we just came back for two weeks now and still love it. We'll leave again with sand in our shoes - meaning we're coming back again. Very nice community, great people, good food and pure nature. The North End Swissies

I took the ferry from Marsh Harbor to Elbow Cay to visit the Hopetown Lodge for the day. Lovely place with a beautiful private beach & pool. I enjoyed a couple of Bloody Mary's by the pool! Treated myself to Bahamian Mac n Cheese for lunch! Yum! Great!
